“We have cleared our balance amounting to K15 million that we owed Mighty Wanderers. We need to concentrate on our deal with Dedza Dynamos,” said Thupi.

Meanwhile, Mighty Wanderers Secretary to the board, Humphreys Mvula has confirmed the receipt of the money.

Humphreys Mvula said Salima Sugar already renewed the contract in March.
